Hi I'm Steven Downs

I grew up in Indiana. I love life, people, and having a good time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Midwest and was raised in a wonderful family. I have been married for 3 years to the love of my life, Rebecca. I love sports, especially the Indianapolis Colts and the St. Louis Cardinals. I am studying Public Administration at Brigham Young University and hope to have a meaningful career in municipal government. I enjoy spending time with great friends and family. We are expecting our first child in May, and my wife and I couldn't be more excited to be parents.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe this life is about reaching potential, becoming a better person. The gospel of Jesus Christ inspires me to be better and is centered around the teachings of Jesus Christ. I love reading from the Bible and Book of Mormon and learning from the teachings of Christ and his chosen prophets. I know that we have prophets again that help guide us and teach us the things that God wants us to know today. I know that as we follow the teachings of Christ and learn of him we will find greater joy.

How I live my faith

I strive each day to be better. I make mistakes, but know that God is forgiving and allows me to change. I pray to God each day and ask for opportunities to serve those around me. We hope to raise children in a way that will be pleasing to our Heavenly Father.
